    One thought on “The Consequences of My Body”

    1. 3.5 stars.I found the book interesting though I didn't particularly love it (and I realize that doesn't make a whole lot of sense.).Some sections felt very unfinished/unrevised to me. I would seek out more from this poet, though I would probably not reread this particular tome.

    2. A smart and humorous long poem about how one person can leave their interior-body to make connections (mental, romantic, physical, etc) with another. Can occasionally be a bit crude/dude-ly for a poetic work, but spun the right way it could be said to be ‘honest.’

    3. My head responded to the furthered work of a lover continuing to love, and as an extension of love all other feelings we should be concerned with: all of them.
